1514-1520 Foul Bay Townhomes

August 2023: 
The eight-unit townhouse project in South Jubilee, intended to replace two single-family homes on Foul Bay Road behind Oak Bay Bikes, has received approval from Victoria council.

Both of the structures will consist of three stories, while the rear units will be limited to two stories, facilitating a gradual transition to the neighboring rear single-family homes. Each of the units will feature ground-level internal garages. Additionally, every housing unit will be equipped with a compact deck on the second floor and a private patio at ground level.

The project has been meticulously designed by the award-winning Zebra Design Group. To meet future climate changes, there are large solar panel arrays hidden on the rooftops, heat pumps, permeable driveway pavers and a riparian rain garden. It will be built to Step Code 4, in order to reduce heating and cooling costs. There is a 4-to1 tree replacement ratio, along with addition of a tree-lined street boulevard.

During the City’s Committee of the Whole review meeting, the project was lauded by council as the kind of housing that is needed in the city.

Wayne Foster, local resident and developer of the project, has indicated that they anticipate commencing construction in the upcoming Spring season, pending the issuance of final permits and approvals. Praising the neighbors and community for their ideas, Wayne said that they provided constructive input to the project in multiple ways.

Project Details:
Developer: Wayne Foster
Location: 1514 – 1520 Foul Bay Road (just north of Oak Bay Bikes parking lot)
Replaces: 2 single family dwellings
Type: Strata Townhouses
Height: 3 storeys + solar array
# units: 8 3-bedroom townhouses each with yardspace garden.
Bicycle parking: 6 visitor spaces
Vehicle parking: each unit has 1-car garage with room for bikes and electric charging.

December 11, 2022: This month, the City will be installing a new traffic diverter on Leighton Road at Amphion Street. Leighton Road is a designated Greenway and this traffic calming diverter will help reduce traffic volumes and support neighbourhood road safety by restricting through traffic at the intersection. The design accommodates emergency vehicles including ambulances and fire trucks.

This project responds to concerns raised by residents regarding non-local traffic bypassing the intersection of Foul Bay Road and Oak Bay Avenue. This option was confirmed after technical analysis and consultation with residents and the neighbourhood association as it best addresses excess volumes of non-local traffic. Earlier this year, speed humps were installed on Lee Avenue and Bourchier Street to further support neighbourhood traffic calming.

Construction impacts are expected to be minimal as crews will be installing pre-fabricated concrete islands and relocating existing planters to form the physical barrier. Using more temporary materials for the diverter allows us to evaluate its impact on traffic volumes and patterns before investing in a more permanent solution. Installing a purpose-built diverter, or other traffic calming solution, is currently being explored as part of future road rehabilitation on Amphion Street in 2024.

Pedestrian, bicycle and local vehicle access will be maintained while work is underway. Always be prepared to follow the direction of crews around active work sites.

Feb 16, 2022: For years, the City has received complaints about cut-through traffic in South Jubilee, particularly on Amphion Street as cars try to avoid the light at Oak Bay Ave/Foul Bay.

This will get much worse with the new Redfern Condo, which will add 100s of cars per day. As a result, the City has proposed a “diverter” at the intersection of Amphion/Leighton, and some speed bumps along Lee and Bouchier.

1905 Lee Ave – Council meeting on September 28 

The City is considering a Rezoning application to subdivide the lot to create two small lots and to construct a new single-family dwelling. The application is concurrent with a Development Permit with Variances application.
